Swift Sport 5dr-03

The five-door version of the Suzuki Swift Sport has been announced in the UK, along with the Swift 4X4 we showed you yesterday. The second-generation Swift Sport made its debut in late-2011 as a three-door hatchback before a five-door joined the fray later on.

No mechanical changes other than the two extra doors, so it’s a high-revving M16A engine with variable intake system and an optimised intake VVT (Variable Valve Timing) for increased valve lift. This 1.6L motor makes 136 PS at 6,900 rpm and 160 Nm of torque at 4,400 rpm, a significant increase from the original SSS’ 125 hp and 148 Nm.

In the UK, the Swift Sport five-door is priced at £14,249 (RM67,523), which is £500 more than the three-door. Suzuki UK expects the new variant to account for a third of SSS sales. In Malaysia, the Swift Sport was launched last month as a five-door, starting from RM97,888. Click here to view our launch report and gallery.
